Kate Middleton could change her style in coming years in preparation for becoming future Queen.
The newly named Princess of Wales is next in line to the Camilla, the Queen Consort, when it comes to royal succession (opens in new tab) and therefore her fashion choices could soon change to prepare her for her future role.
Fashion expert, Miranda Holder, claims Kate's wardrobe style could become "more formal and appropriate for her position" and she's predicted to ditch a few accessories.
Like the rest of the Royal Family, Kate must adhere to "royal restrictions" when choosing her day-to-day outfits.
Miranda explained, "The more flirtatious fancier accessories such as hatbands will be fully phased out for more imposing hats. And prints such as polka dots (opens in new tab)" will gradually give way to "more immaculately cut tailoring in Kate’s signature fit and flare style which complements her graceful figure perfectly,” she added.

Miranda, who is known for her viral TikTok videos, added, "Her immaculate outfits will no doubt remain stylish enough to enthral her loyal fashion-loving fans,”

The stylist noted that throughout the years "we have witnessed Kate’s fresh-faced girl next door appeal morph into a sophisticated and elegant style sensation treading the tricky line between royalty and celebrity in her favourite nude toned court shoes with panache".
